Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Protect Yourself From The Sun
Shielding your body from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light is vital, in any season. Both types of UV rays, UVA and UVB, are invisible and damaging, causing sunburn, premature aging and skin cancer. Cloudy days are no protection, since UV rays penetrate clouds. Skin cancer is on the rise, including the most serious—malignant melanoma. While many of us think about using sunscreen only when we're heading out to the beach or pool, UV rays do their damage any time of day. They can pass through window glass or reflect off concrete and snow, as well as sand and water. When choosing sunscreen, it is best to choose only those that are labeled “broad-spectrum”. This means they block both UVA and UVB rays. The more sun you get, the more likely you are to get damage and potentially increase the development of melanoma and skin cancer. You can learn more about the Mayor's Wellness Campaign and take the pledge to join by clicking HERE.
